In various studies during recent years, the use of p-aminobenzoic acid has been described in screening tests for exocrine pancreatic function. A synthetic three-unit compound N-benzoyl-L-tyrosyl-p-aminobenzoic acid has been administered orally and hydrolysed in the small intestine in the presence of chymotrypsin to N-benzoyl-L-tyrosine and p-aminobenzoic acid. This study describes a convenient procedure in which, after a selective extraction and derivatization with diazomethane, capillary gas chromatography is used combined with nitrogen-sensitive detection. With the proposed procedure, p-a…
